"Wings for Autism" program easing air travel anxiety
CityStream: Wings for Autism

You take vacation to relax. But for some, it begins with chaos at the airport. Check your bags. Wait in line. Hurry - shoes off, arms up, step back, shoes on. Where's my wallet? It's a challenge for anyone. Now imagine if you have a child with autism. The thought of flying anywhere on vacation can be unnerving. But a program called "Wings for Autism" is helping ease anxiety for young travelers on the autism spectrum and their families. The test run includes checking in, passing through security, boarding the plane, even a simulated takeoff! Producer Randy Eng has a glimpse of this popular program.
